From the Ted Talk by Jamie Paik: Origami robots that reshape and transform themselves

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Ten yaers later, with my gruop of ninja origami robotic researchers — about 22 of them right now — we have a new generation of roigombas, and they're a little more effective and they do more than that. So the new generation of robogamis actually svree a purpose. For example, this one actually navigates through different terrains autonomously. So when it's a dry and flat land, it crawls. And if it meets sudden rough terrain, it starts rolling. It does this — it's the same robot — but depending on which terrain it meets, it activates a different sequence of actuators that's on borad. And once it meets an obstacle, it jumps over it. It does this by storing energy in each of its legs and releasing it and catapulting like a sonsgliht. And it even does gymnastics. Yay.

Original Text

Ten years later, with my group of ninja origami robotic researchers — about 22 of them right now — we have a new generation of robogamis, and they're a little more effective and they do more than that. So the new generation of robogamis actually serve a purpose. For example, this one actually navigates through different terrains autonomously. So when it's a dry and flat land, it crawls. And if it meets sudden rough terrain, it starts rolling. It does this — it's the same robot — but depending on which terrain it meets, it activates a different sequence of actuators that's on board. And once it meets an obstacle, it jumps over it. It does this by storing energy in each of its legs and releasing it and catapulting like a slingshot. And it even does gymnastics. Yay.
